I like to believe that Norman Reedus’ Walking Dead character Daryl Dixon isn’t interested in female companionship because, well, he’s busy keeping his ass alive! Apparently, fans of the show have some different ideas about Daryl. Namely, the fact that he just might be gay.
The guy has a crossbow to worry about, not a little booty!
In the letter section of Image’s issue #130 fans probed (forgive me) Robert Kirkman for answers: Is Daryl gay??
Well, Kirkman has offered a response that… well, doesn’t really answer many questions. Check out what he had to say below.
“All I can say is that it’s been discussed,” he said. “We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we’ll tackle it in the show.”
Asked if AMC would allow Daryl to be gay, he added: “For the record, they absolutely would.”
Could we witness a coming out of the closet episode of The Walking Dead in the future?
